Time to check your pantry, you'll be in a world of pain if you eat this soup.

The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is releasing yet a new nationwide health alert, this time in the soup aisle. Though most problems usually come from the meat section of the store, soups are no exception to recalls. Especially when a company doesn't follow the proper protocols.

Ready-to-Eat Meat Soup Health Alert

This newest public health alert is being issued because a number of ready-to-eat meat soup products might have been made, packed, or handled under insanitary conditions. Not only is the soup possibly contaminated, but it could also spoil before it's listed expiration date because of it.

FSIS is advising anyone with the soup to NOT eat or serve the product. They are not issuing a recall because the products are no longer being sold in stores. But that doesn't mean someone might still have it in their home.
